Can anyone explain to me why WDTV does not recognize my mp4 files via network? The mp4's are recognized and play fine if they are on a usb drive.

Also, I only want to share one folder with my WDTV, which is how I thought I had set it up. When I go to videos, every video on my entire computer comes up (except my mp4's...grrr), and this takes extra time to load.

Connect via network shares instead of via media server. The WDTV sees those shares that are shared from your computer. If you don't want to be able to access shares from the WDTV, you need to set passwords.
